Pike County mother that lost family in fire released from hospital

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) - A woman injured in a Pike County fire, that killed her entire family, has been released from the hospital.

Officials say Tammy Tucker was released from the UK Medical Center Tuesday.

She was rushed there last week with severe burns after a fire at her home in Jonancy.

Investigators think an electric heater likely sparked the fire that killed Tucker's boyfriend, William Wilfong, and their four young children.

We're told the four were found in the same room as the heater.
